James Taylor forced to retire because of heart problem

Nottinghamshire and England batsman James Taylor has been forced to retire at the age of just 26 because of a “very serious” heart condition, his county announced on Tuesday.

Taylor, who won the last of his seven caps in England’s most recent Test against South Africa at Centurion three months ago, withdrew from Nottinghamshire’s opening and ongoing County Championship match at home to Surrey because of illness. The Midlands county announced on its website on Tuesday that “specialist scans revealed yesterday (Monday) that the 26-year-old has the very serious heart condition, ARVC (Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Arrhythmia).” Taylor, whose condition requires surgery, told his Twitter followers: “Safe to say this has been the toughest week of my life! My world is upside down. But I’m here to stay and I’m battling on! #lifestooshort.”
